After more than 2 years of inactivity, Ronin Collective is back, and we wanted to do a special release for our return. Gama, a 24 track, 2hour compilation featuring Ronin members, guests and friends perfectly defining the eclecticism behind the Ronin style. You'll find everything ronin has been and more; returning members deliver yet again with a periphery of tones and styles from Blisaed's guitar-hop, to Wiseman's folk-psychadelia, to Benefit of the Boomerang's flaming jungle and V0idnull's goa epic. Also, two new official members to Ronin: recent guest-releaser Fah offers two incredible tracks, a 12 minute acid track and a gorgeous cinematic forray into analog ambient as outro to our comp, and Troupe, with a delicate indie-tronic track. Last, we also have a few great guests on the compil, including Nagz with his enchanting demo-breaks, Le Monsieur Baguette's naive melodies and glitchy love, Kevin Chow's orchestral masterpiece, Beatslaughter's two contributions to the world of breakbeat and everything in between. Ranging from ambient, to hip-hop, through idm and to harsh noise, this compilation is a manifesto to our ideologies of creativity and individuality.

I think I recognize some artists from the Renoise community. Anyway, great compilation, just love the difference in style with each song. Great work and it's amazing that you've released it through archive.org!

such nice compilations then
there were so many wonderful compilations coming out at the same time, but this is one of my favorites.
A compilation that deserve more people to get interested into it.
As usual with the musou family, you can expect beauty through different genres, from ambient to triphop with some twists of breakcore or even noise music, it's always melodic and of course, well composed.
You will also discover some new monikers that are finally waiting your comments to keep on providing sweet beats and melodies for your ears.
A compilation that of course lacks the biggiebiggie name to get the right exposure but which is, i think, not feeling ashamed at all.
A compilation you might bring along with you during long family weekends (yeah, december you know...)
